Description

Job interviews are stressful for everybody, and maybe even more so for people with disabilities. But they don’t have to be. This video shows how to turn an interview into a self-selling opportunity that focuses on what a disabled candidate can do, no matter how obvious his or her physical limitations might be. Offering detailed pointers on preparing for an interview, including ways to project confidence and a positive attitude, the program also suggests approaching an interview as a chance to dispel stereotypes and improve a prospective employer’s understanding of disabilities. Ways to respond effectively to frequently asked questions—some appropriate, some illegal, all of them challenging—are presented along with a helpful discussion of how to follow up after an interview. A Cambridge Educational/MotionMasters Co-Production. A part of the series Disabilities at Work: Successful Job Hunting for People with Disabilities. (28 minutes)
